66 in boston. look at the dew points 60 degrees, we broke out the frizz factor again today. even the beach forecast appropriate. still on track to be the warmest december on record. average temperature without today included 46.1. so a lot of people have asked me how did other warm december fare with seasonal snow totals? food for thought to go with the christmas dinner tonight. the top three warmest decembers before this year only saw seasonal snow totals in the teens. so there is that. take it for what it's worth. highs today 70 norwood. 70 beverly. 65 worcester. 69 boston. we break the record today for all across the board and only three times since record keeping began have we seen christmas temperatures 60 or above and most recept one was in 1964. not so recent. normal highs is 39 degrees. currently temperatures no where close to that.
63 for worcester and the dew points again still a touch high for us. so getting ready for your christmas party tonight. you might notice that it's a little unruly with the dew. that is to be expected what we have dew points in the 60s, won't be as bad temperatures mild. a bit of a brees and wince from worcester 20 miles an hour, 13 miles an hour winds in boston but it's a mild breeze. overnight. maybe you can see that almost full moon. areas of fog could form. again it's a lot of moisture out there. all the rain that we had last night had a hard time drying off today. 46-56 for lows. tomorrow still mild. 56-62 well above normal. christmas full moon hasn't happened since 1977. it's 100% about an hour before it sets. it won't happen again until 2034. highs tomorrow 20 degrees above normal. 59 for boston and some spots
possibly making it to the low 60s again. we have to wait until sunday for a better chance for the rain to show up again. but it does look like rain. monday, a little more questionable here. temperatures certainly dropping off but let's get through the weekend first. clouds move in. they stick around with us. then we do get that shot at rain early sunday morning. possibly another round as we get into the afternoon. but here is what is happening with the temperatures. you've had the big boost. we get a bit of a dip allowing for colder air to move in on saturday. right back up for sunday and then winter arrives as we get into the beginning of next week. it'll feel much more like winter. those temperatures dropping from 62 on sunday to 36 on monday. we're talking well above average to below average temperatures. we're even looking at the potential for some snowfall, sleet, even freezing rain a possible. tuesday looks to be a mess but we have time to nail down the details and we'll do it for you.
